I was kidding.

Wait until you see my Struts/APL bridge code.

Although with regards to the "generation" of languages: I can still do 
things in Lisp that I can't do in any reasonable way using almost any 
non-Lisp language, and Lisp was right up there with the original 
languages. Interesting. But more modern languages are catching up, which 
is fun to watch. I find a lot of similarities to "modern" language ideas 
in Lisp, SmallTalk, etc.

Here's a joke: A friend recently stole the last 100 pages of a huge, 
proprietary Lisp program, but all he got was the closing parentheses.
